Vigna del Papa

Malvasia and Trebbiano, a rich and sweet vinsanto, absolutely in keeping with Tuscan tradition. Intense golden yellow with antique gold hues. Aromas of yellow flowers and fruit, honey, candied citrus fruit and spices. Very rich, sweet, soft and velvety, with a full flavour and aromatic hints of fruit and honey. Tradition has it that it should have been ready to sanctify Easter.
